Brazen Hussies reveals a revolutionary chapter in Australian history – the Women’s Liberation Movement (1965–75). This documentary shows us how a daring and diverse group of women joined forces to defy the status quo, demand equality and create profound social change - contributing to one of the greatest social movements of the 20th Century.
The film interweaves freshly uncovered archival footage, personal photographs, memorabilia and lively accounts from the bold women who reignited the feminist movement in Australia, sometimes at great personal cost.
‘Brazen Hussies does an excellent job of condensing and capturing what was a heady and turbulent period of consciousness raising and revolution in Australia’ – The Conversation
